China leads world in power generation: official


09:00, March 07, 2012

BEIJING, March 6 (Xinhua) -- China has taken a lead in power generation by producing a total of 4.8 terawatts of electricity last year, an energy official said here Tuesday.

China also has the world's second largest installed generation capacity, which currently stands at 1.06 gigawatts, said Wu Xinxiong, chairman of the State Electricity Regulatory Commission (SERC).

For the next stage, the SERC will enhance monitoring over the power industry, supervise the country's power development strategy and better serve local development, Wu said on the sidelines of the country's annual parliamentary session.

The SERC will also enhance scientific management over the power network to ease divergences between supply and demand, and further increase installed capacity to support China's economic and social development, he said.

More efforts will be made to boost reform in the power sector and provide high-quality power services to Chinese citizens, Wu added.
